After a horrible hit during Saturday's football game against Oklahoma in Tulsa, Tulane University Senior Safety, Devon Walker is in stable condition. It is still unknown if he will be paralyzed.

Dr. Greg Stewart is Tulane's team doctor and he was on the field taking care of Walker after the injury.

"We saw Devon go down. We went to the field to acess him. I was in the ambulance and emergency room with him," Dr. Stewart said.

Walker underwent a 3 hour surgery, but now the waiting game has begun.

"At this time, we don't know if he will be paralyzed or not. A lot of people are getting upset with us because we won't answer that question. The truth is it will take a few days before we will know anything more," Dr. Stewart said.

Walker's doctor doesn't think anything could've prevented the accident.

"The equipment he was wearing was all appropriate equipment. None of it was designed to prevent neck injuries," he said.
